The only (sane) way to get below the Arc de Triomphe is by an underground tunnel on the north side of the Champs Elysees. Once there, spend some time looking up close at the intricate detail in the Arc, a tableau of French history. You can also go to the top of the Arc, for a fee, to get a great view of the city.

As it says on the website sited below, the Arc is "the most famous symbol of (France's) national history". Spend a few minutes here, and you'll really feel that history.
